|The Phantom Of The Opera - Unmasking Scene - Universal Pictures|
This is the famous scene when Christine (played by Mary Philbin) unmasks the Phantom, Erik (played by Lon Chaney). This scene scared audiences so badly that, according to some old timers I talked to, there was a sharp increase in sales of replacement theater seats. No kidding!

|"Things To Come" - Montage - Alexander Korda|
In 1936, director William Cameron Menzies, editor William Hornbeck, and composer Sir Arthur Bliss, pooled their considerable talents and created what is possibly (at least, I think) the most powerful two minutes and 22 seconds ever put on film -- the prophetic montage from Alexander Korda's "Things To Come." It is an exercise in contrasts between war and peace. How can this clip fit into your anti-war project? Let your imagination run away with you...
